Can I Make a Carpal Tunnel Injury Claim?

Carpel tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve—which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand—becomes pressed and squeezed at the wrist, making the canal smaller and causing a nerve irritation that is quite painful.

Perhaps you spend long hours in the day typing on a computer keyboard, working on the assembly line, or using a vibrating tool on the construction site. The underlying commonality of these different activities is the repetitive motion of making the same hand or wrist movements over and over again. On the other hand, carpal tunnel syndrome can also be caused by trauma, such as a car accident or work-related accident that results in broken bones, sprains, or strains.

If you have been diagnosed with this condition, you may have a valid legal claim depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury. For instance, if your job requires repetitive motions or activities and you’ve experienced symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, then you may have grounds to file a workers’ compensation claim. If your carpal tunnel condition was caused by an accident unrelated to your job, such as a car collision, you may pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent party.
